Martin Antonio Coggi came up short in a close fight for the World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Light Welterweight title against Christopher Sebire in France last October, but now he is ready to start the road back towards a new shot at world honours.

On Saturday May 20 the son of former world champion, and Argentinian icon, Juan Martin Coggi, will take on another Frenchman in Lyes Chaibi for the vacant WBF Intercontinental Light Welterweight title, this time on home soil in Buenos Aires.

A former South American champion, 33-year-old Coggi has been a professional for almost twelve years, and holds a very respectable 33-7-3 (16) record. Having performed at high level against Sebire, he is eager to build on that experience and earn another crack.

In fellow Southpaw Lyes Chaibi (33), he will be facing a tricky opponent who has blown hot and cold since entering the paid ranks in 2011. At 15-10-2 (3), he has experienced a bit of everything against some very good adversaries, and as is the case with most French fighters he is very game and durable.

In November of 2015 Chaibi was narrowly outpointed by Andrea Scarpa in Italy, with the IBF Intercontinental title up for grabs, and more than a few ringsiders felt he could have been declared the winner that night. Against Coggi he gets a new chance to win a title, and he plans to make the most of it.
